Like opening a punnet of the freshest strawberries - green stems with a sweet fruit nose; fresh hedgerows, onto raspberry and cranberry with confected, sour cherry; drinks with real energy and depth. Pretty and complex; the perfect balance of sweet with refreshing acidity. I have major wine crush again...
A wine that matches up to the beautiful artwork on the label from @almahaser 💫
Full on pretty not ugly, learn to see perfection in imperfections...Jolie laide ce n'est pas 💘
Greedy, basic dinner by me, music by LateNightTales from Badbadnotgood yet again 🙏🏼
Name this color! I’m calling it “dirty bathwater” for now.

LOVE the jolie laide situation when you put @still_life_ceramics’s pretty turquoise glaze on brown clay! It gets bubbly and rough and looks like lichen where it’s thin — you can see this toward the bottom. I can’t wait to play around more with this one.

POOL WEATHER ALL YEAR ROUND PLEASE. Also: these wines all year round. I mean look at these babes! California wine, you fine. Get some ——> @jolielaidewines@scar_of_the_sea
An electric shade of rosy amber. Dry and chalky in the nose, peaty and weedy, foggy haze cooling and subduing all sounds. Sparkling brilliance in the mouth, everything coming to unfettered life, blossoms and sprouts and dew drops glistening old barrels and steel hoops and THE MOST delicate, fragile, and angelic fruit in the sunlight moment.
